TRAFFIC

PUNXSUTAWNEY — If you're familiar with the way traffic patterns have been set up for Groundhog Day in the past, then you'll be good to go when it comes to Phil's 127th-annual trek to Gobbler's Knob.

"Nothing has changed. Once again this year, parking will be prohibited on Woodland Avenue, with the detour beginning at 3 a.m., and all vehicles that are normally parked in the street by residents will be towed if they haven't been moved by that time," said Tom Fedigan, Punxsutawney Borough Police chief.
